February 20, Daily Food

20.  Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.  HEB. 9:28.

It cost him death to save our lives.

To buy our souls it cost his own;

And all the unknown joys he gives

Were bought with agonies unknown.

Be patient, therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.  JAS. 5:7.

Mixed Berry Smoothie

I like my smoothies sweet, so feel free to substitute flavored yogurt of your choice.

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries

1 Danimals Dannon brand Strikin Strawberry Kiwi flavored Smoothie (drinkable yogurt)

2 heaping TBS. Greek plain yogurt

1 TBS. honey

1 TBS. vanilla extract

1 tsp. seedless blackberry jam

I make single smoothies in my Magic Bullet, but when making for 3 or more people I use my large food processor and triple the ingredients.  Put the frozen or fresh fruit where it will be closest to the blade, and add all the rest of the ingredients and process or blend until smooth and well mixed.

I normally go to my local fresh food market 1 time a week.  I wash all my fruits in a vinegar and water bath for 15 minutes gently stirring the fruits around and than after they have soaked I rinse them well in cold water and freeze them.  Organic is not always available or the price is too much so I hope this cleaning method gets most of the dirt and pesticides off.  Any time I use apples I buy organic or peel off all the skin.

 

No Bake Choc. Peanut Butter Cookies

Easy for children with braces to eat.  Crush all dry ingredients in a food processor than pulse to mix in wet ingredients.

1 cup fine crumbs of vanilla wafers, or graham crackers, or vanilla butter cookies crumbled and made fine in the food processor

1 cup quick oats pulsed in food processor

1 cup peanut butter (creamy for braces) pulsed

1 TBS vanilla

2 TBS Coca powder, I used light sugar Nestle Quick

1/4 cup honey or agave syrup

1 cup raisins pulsed

Make sure all items are fine so that nothing gets caught in braces.  Use a teaspoon to press spoonfuls in clean ice cube trays and refrigerate until set 2 to 3 hours.  Store in refrigerator.
